Top Ten Tuesday: Online Resources for Book Lovers

Hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

I can’t wait to read everyone else’s lists! Most of the stuff on our list is totally free to use, although some sites do offer a few more features for paid memberships if you’re interested in subscribing.

1. LibraryThing

You can use this site to catalogue your personal library.

2. Urban Dictionary 

I’m guessing that most of you are already familiar with this slang dictionary, but I sure find it helpful when a character uses a term that I’m not familiar with.

3. Bibliomania 

Not only does this site contain about 2000 classic texts, it also includes study guides and summaries f

4. What Should I Read Next? 

This is a great place to go if you’ve just read something romantic, scary, funny, or thought-provoking and want to find a book that’s similar to it.

5. Bookcrossing

Imagine giving a book to a stranger and being able to track where it ends up in the world. I’ve left plenty of books at Little Free Libraries and similar places and wish I could have learned who took them home and if they adored them.

6. The Rare Book Room

These are digital copies of rare books for anyone to read.

7. Black Chick Lit 

This is a podcast about books written by and for black women.

8. Poetry Archive 

Go here to listen to poets read their poems.

9. Scribl 

This site has a long list of podcasts about audiobooks. How cool is that?

10. WikiBooks

Think of this like Wikipedia for textbooks. Anyone can read or edit them!


  1. Bookcrossing sounds really cool!

  2. Can’t believe I didn’t know about What Should I Read Next! Could have saved a lot of time haha 🙂

  3. Oh, this is such a cool list! I like how you listed things that I haven’t seen on other lists. Thanks for sharing these resources.

  4. Jessica @ a GREAT read says

    OOh nice ones! Quite a few new to me ones but I’ve been seeing the What Should I Read Next? Though I let my TBR jars decide that for me…but I usually end up choosing titles myself too. Lol.

    Thanks for visiting my TTT!

  5. Poetry Archive sounds perfect. I love hearing poets read their own work.

  6. Great suggestions, thanks! I’m intrigued by the literature on Bibliomania, and love the idea of Bookcrossing. Happy TTT!

  7. Because I am ANCIENT, I find myself consulting Urban Dictionary all the time!

    Happy TTT…thanks for visiting my blog earlier!

  8. Urban Dictionary referencing is a good idea!

  9. Oh wow I didn’t know about any of these! Thanks!! What Should I Next sounds like something I’d use ha ha. I didn’t know you could track books like that either…

    • You’re welcome. There are so many good resources out there.

      I tried to leave a reply on your post. I hope it went through!

      • I don’t see it, it may have went to spam. sorry! I know this has happened once or twice before, and it irritates me lol especially when I don’t know where the comment went! Thank you for trying to comment though!!!!

  10. Someone else mentioned BookCrossing earlier, and I am so tempted to join, especially as I don’t reread my books.

    Pam @ Read! Bake! Create!

  11. I love the idea of BookCrossing! What Should I Read Next sounds really handy too.
